Two Deadlines Loom

Before dashing off the weekend, I want to remind everybody of two important upcoming deadlines. Don’t forget, April 15th is tax day, and it’s next Thursday! Still plenty of time to use TurboTax to finish your returns.

Also, for anybody interested in the $8,000 first-time home buyer tax credit or the $6,500 home buyer tax credit…they expire at the end of this month. Sort of. You must sign purchase agreements by April 30, 2010 and close by June 30, 2010 to be eligible for the credits. So there’s still time to get mortgage approval and shop for the perfect home. Just don’t feel like you have to buy a home to get the tax credit. Buy a home when you’re ready to buy a home. Period.

Happy Friday!
